Our Spring RV Travels Begin – Florida and Georgia

We left Aquila on the dock in Ft. Lauderdale, and headed north in our RV.  We are keeping our fingers crossed that Aquila will soon sell, so that we can focus our energy on this new lifestyle in the motorhome.

We began by spending a few days at Markham County Park right there in Ft. Lauderdale.  This gave us a chance to get moved off the boat and back into the RV.

After a few days, we felt ready to begin our trip up the East Coast.  Lake Toho RV Park was our next stop.  We planned to go on an airboat ride which promised to be a nature photo opp.  Unfortunately, the wind was blowing 30 mph and all boat rides were cancelled.  They let us hold a baby alligator which was in their care.  It is not a pet.

In Georgia, we stayed at the Crooked River State Park and LOVED it.  It is exactly the kind of campsite that we love.  It is spacious, lots of trees, campfire ring, hiking trails, and bicycling trails.  We had the perfect spot.  While we were there, we toured nearby St. Mary’s so Mike could visit the Submarine Museum.

We have now moved on to the Carolina’s where we have been visiting several old friends and where we also experienced serious mechanical problems.  All that news in the next update.  By the way, I went back to my previous posts and inserted the pictures that I couldn’t insert previously.  Go back and check them out.

Cheers!

    • Hi LaVonne! Oh my gosh, we drove right through Pawleys Island! We’re up in Charlotte now with reservations going North. Sorry we missed seeing you and Daryll. Pawleys Island looked very nice. You two must be very happy there!

  1. I can’t wait to hear all about the mechanical problems. You are my guinea pigs guys! Keep me posted. Take care and look forward to your crossing the Cascades into WA. Alan & Joan

  2. After our Pensacola stop we will be heading up to Georgia and the Carolinas. I will keep an eye of where you are staying for it could be on our way too.
    I have a few post in WA in case you are heading that way too.
    Mechanical Problems…I would like to hear them, for we had issues ourselves and will share notes.

  3. Enjoy your eastern tour. We have yet to do this in the RV so look forward to some tips on where to go and what to see. Hopefully your mechanical problems are now behind you.
